    Metered Market Tuesday Ratings
    Modest Season Enders on ABC and Fox

    Tuesday 5/05/15

    CBS 7.5/12
    ABC 4.5/ 7
    NBC 4.3/ 7
    Fox 3.4/ 5
    CW 1.9/ 3

    -Percent Change from Year-Ago Evening – Tuesday 5/13/14:


    Note: The following labels are based on the household overnights and are subject to change given the availability of other pending data streams. These overnights are your first look at the ratings and a precursor to what could lie ahead. And we take into account other benchmarks including the expected demographic ratings, potential DVR usage, the critical acclaim (or lack of) and the social media presence.

    “NCIS” (CBS), “Dancing With the Stars” (ABC), “The Flash” (CW), “NCIS: New Orleans” (CBS), “Chicago Fire” (NBC)

    -Nothing Special:
    “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”

    -Losers (excluding repeats):
    “Undateable” (NBC)


    -Ratings Breakdown:
    It was another easy Tuesday overnight victory for CBS care of the season-finales of “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 9.3 rating/15 share), spin-off “NCIS” New Orleans” (#1: 8.2/13) and a Tuesday 10 p.m. edition of “CSI: Cyber” (#1: 5.3/ 9), which are all returning next season.

    Moving into the distant No. 2 was ABC thanks to the live “Dancing With the Stars” Results Show at a 7.7/12 (#2) in the 8 p.m. hour. And that led into the two-hour season-finale of overrated “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” at a 2.9/ 5 from 9-11 p.m., which all things considered is not all that positive. Maybe leaving “SHIELD” in the Tuesday 9 p.m. hour next season (into new drama “Quantico”) is not such a good idea.

    NBC, of course, will get young adult demo mileage out of “The Voice,” which finished third in the household overnights at a 5.9/10 from 8-9 p.m. Two episodes of Friday bound (bad idea, NBC) sitcom “Undateable” – including the season finale – followed with a 2.5/ 4 at 9 p.m.(#4) and a 2.3/ 4 at 9:30 p.m. (#4). And that led into a 4.6/ 8 for “Chicago Fire” at 10 p.m., which built by 100 percent. As much as I do personally like “Undateable,” this is not the hit NBC would like you to believe.

    Elsewhere, a repeat of “Hell’s Kitchen” on Fox (#5: 2.5/ 4 from 8-9 p.m.) led into a second-place 4.3/ 7 for a Tuesday 9-10 p.m. edition of “American Idol,” which is officially concluding next season. And The CW had a typical Tuesday in the overnights care of bona fide hit “The Flash” (#4: 2.7/ 4) and recently renewed entry “iZombie” (#5: 1.2/ 2).

  • About the Daily Ratings
    Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

    If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent
    Ratings FAQ.
